We know that relationships are so much more than just two halves coming together as some might say...
The real beauty is when two people choose each other and a brand new song is first heard. This special moment is what we never get tired of celebrating.
We are Anaru & Pia -
Mr. & Mrs. Church, best friends, lovers of love and suckers for simple & deep moments
Songbirds represent two souls, with different make ups, choosing to become one and sing with each other forever. That's a pretty good metaphor for what we love to do!
We work together, always, to capture weddings, engagement and elopements all over New Zealand & anywhere that love calls.
Anaru is Maori and Pia is Mexican!
We first met when Anaru was 15 and Pia was 18 at church! We then crossed paths again 6 years later at the same place.
We got married in November 30th 2019, 3 months after Anaru proposed.
For our wedding, we hired an AirBnB in Raglan, NZ for our wedding venue. We invited all our friends for the weekend and celebrated under a huge outdoor fairy light ceiling.
Anaru is a professional musician and has sung many brides down the aisle.
Pia is a black belt in TaeKwonDo and is a New Zealand national champion.
Anaru was originally a builder by trade but he took a leap of faith into the creative world of photography. He still builds handy things from time to time.
Pia has a secret passion for aviation and is working towards getting her Pilot's Licence.
Our favourite pastimes include hunting down good coffee, watching movies, playing board games, hiking, road-tripping and any grand excuse to meet new people.
We have a gizzilion things we want to do in our lives, including becoming a barber and florist and opening up a shop, owning an ice cream van and touring New Zealand, being a musical traveling duo, creating new businesses, start a family, capture a thousand weddings and who knows what else!
Our biggest goal in life is to become love.
